Winner of the 1992 Obie Award. This is the story of an American mega-artist so
successful he's had the obligatory profile in Vanity Fair and can claim astronomical
prices for his works sight unseen from a waiting list of wealthy patrons. In England
for a retrospective of his paintings, the artist goes into the countryside to
visit his original muse and lover, the "sacrificial shiksa" whom he abandoned in his
quest for the opulent life which now devours him. "...you can tell when a play has
gripped its audience, for no one seems to breathe, let alone shift in his seat.
This phenomenon can be observed... at SIGHT UNSEEN, a smart and sad comedy by
Donald Margulies." -NY Times.

is excited about her third season with WFP. She has been
playing in the dark backstage since high school and has stage
managed productions throughout college and then with the Valley
Players in Waitsfield, VT after moving here from upstate NY.
When not playing in the theater, Kathryn can usually be found
at her job as an environmental laboratory analyst in Williston
or singing with St. Michael's College Liturgical choir.
Occasionally she is even at home in Underhill with her husband,
Jake, and their houseful of loving critters. She thanks her
parents (both English teachers) for passing on their love of
theater and her husband for his loving patience.
